I tried playing golf au natural.  Sadly, there was significant objections from the other golfers and those houses adjacent to the course. The police were not amused, either.

 

Funny, I got the same reaction at my course when I tried it too.  🙂

I fish ... Nekkid!  (I kid, I kid) 

But seriously, I go fishing on the boat a lot or to the beach and my golfers tan is really non-existent.

Golfers might be interested in this product. I've heard it's non-greasy and made by golfers for golfers.

Easy. I wear a bandana across the face and nose one time, and then a hat the next! Boom!

I always wear a hat when I play, but so don’t play enough to get the degree of golfer’s tan on the forehead they do.

Oh, I do try and apply plenty of SPF 50+ lotion to minimize the damage, but it's simply the price one pays to play golf in warm weather. I've tried wearing wide brim hats, but like playing in sunglasses, I don't like doing so.  I do wear 1/4 zip pullovers whenever I can to save the arms... but usually have to peel them off at some point during the round.

It’s one of my biggest insecurities. Plus it has always told my wife that I just played golf, which I may or may not always inform her of.

This year I have been mister pool guy trying to even it out with a focus of the sock tan. It’s worked out nicely.
